Tristan is a good boy and totally deserves his own room. So in an effort to try to get his room ready for his birthday in August last weekend Friday I started digging the trench for the bamboo guard.
I used the concrete rubble to hold it in place while I back filled.
The following Friday (this past Friday) I started the fence. digging holes, pouring cement and letting it set over night. This morning we hung all the planks and voilà... a fence
the super dwarf peach
the dwarf meyer lemon
the blenheim apricot
and a santa rosa plumBest of all they are now protected from that bad bamboo.
Our back tomatoes seem to be doing ok. The tree collard on the right and some swiss chard on the left.
